“I noticed that the dynamic range between what an average person could accomplish and what the best person could accomplish was 50 or 100 to 1. Given that, you’re well advised to go after the cream of the cream…A small team of A+ players can run circles around a giant team of B and C players.” Steve Jobs
Are you considering using a staffing company to help you find your next project or opportunity? Recruiting/staffing companies are your sales team. They find the opportunities that you may not have access to. Staffing agencies have relationships with industry leaders thus they are able to leverage those relationships and find opportunities that may never reach an online job board. Associating with one of these companies puts you on the fast track to working in, or working for, Fortune 500 companies.
It is easy to identify effective teams. Those teams meet their deadlines, produce quality results and most importantly, deliver on the mission and purpose of the team.
In this webinar, you’ll learn how to handle IT project escalations and failures like a pro. No matter the circumstances – even if the stakes are high and emotions are charged – this session will teach you:
We all know that customer satisfaction, or the customer experience, is really important to the success of all businesses. It doesn’t matter if it’s business-to-business, or B2B, or business-to-customer, or B2C. Companies with poor customer satisfaction are guaranteed one thing: they’re going out of business...
Delivering customer satisfaction is crucial as a consultant. If your ultimate objective is to garner future business with that customer or ask for a referral, if you hone in on making that client satisfied you will turn a project into a long-lasting relationship.
In our last blog post, I wrote that Steve Jobs said A players are 50-100 times more productive than B or C players. Here again I mention Steve: he credited Apple’s ability to find, hire and retain A players as a key driver in the company’s unprecedented success.
Over the past 20 years Entelligence consultants have delivered over 30,000 enterprise IT projects. And what we’ve found is that the top 10% of IT consultants – the A players - have 5 traits that put them head and shoulders above the rest of the crowd.
Steve Jobs was right. He said that “A small team of A players can run circles around a giant team of B and C players.” And he said that there was a huge difference between what an average person – a B player – can accomplish, and what the best person – an A player – can accomplish. He noted that A players accomplish 50-100 times more than average, B players.
